that’s how i wanted it to be lyrics – hank williams jr.

i thought i’d like to leave
the black side of life for a while
to live alone and have some fun

so i told her to take the kids and go back to her ma
that’s how i wanted it to be
and i felt satisfied it was over and done

i wake up every morning make myself a cup of jay
down to the factory that’s where i spend my pay
five o’clock the whistle blows and that leaves the evening free
that’s how i wanted it to be

well, it didn’t take me long to find out just how much i missed her
so i wrote and told her to take the kids and come on back home
’cause i was ready to settle down now

well, you see i just got her letter today
and it seems she’s found someone she can depend on
that’s how i wanted it to be, she ain’t coming home no more

i wake up every morning make myself a cup of jay
down to the factory that’s where i spend my pay
five o’clock the whistle blows and that leaves the evening free
that’s how i wanted it to be
